Alabama Gets Its Revenge, Will Face Georgia for National Championship

Alabama will face the Georgia Bulldogs in college football’s national championship game, after the No. 4 Crimson Tide beat No. 1 Clemson late Monday at the Sugar Bowl 24-6, avenging its loss in the title match last season. “They talked so much trash, but we just came in here and dominated the game,” said Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley. “We just wanted to come out here and dominate the game, and that’s what we did, dominate ... we dominated Clemson. Dominated. Dominated.” “It was a little personal for us after the way the game played out last year,” Alabama Coach Nick Saban noted, referring to the 35-31 game that went to Clemson. The win sets up an all-Southeast Conference capper to the playoff tournament, set for Jan. 8 in Atlanta.
